Jonah Goldberg: Is the Islamic state really un-Islamic?

jonah-goldberg.jpg If we're talking clarity, I'd say the Islamic State is clearly not Mormon. Or Lutheran. Or Buddhist. It most certainly is not the most extreme example of Quakers gone bad ever recorded.

John Kass: Send Goodell packing with Rice
